He was called Satchmo because of his...??? (I know the answer. Do you?)




"What a Wonderful World".
This record is a 45 with a small (and unusual) spindle hole and it was pressed in 1968.  It came all the way from across the pond in England!  Normally, I'd count this as a collector's item and not dare paint on it, but it had an enormous scratch going across the entire song, rendering it useless for listening to.
It is the favorite song of a very special guy, to whom this is being birthday gifted, from his lovely wife.  The yellow rosebuds were a special request in the design.
It is headed out to central Texas, pronto!

And if you know the story of how Louis Armstrong got the nickname "Satchmo," well then...2 extra coolness chips in your jar, my friend.  One of my favorite songs of all time is Skokiann.
